I'm a pretty nondescript person. I live with my wonderful wife and three children in a little, beige house with an overgrown backyard that's prowled by a small pride of house cats. I distrustfully tolerate them (the cats), and they begrudgingly tolerate me.

I drink lots of coffee on the level of a connoisseur, read consistently from my library packed with books on everything from 1800s pulp literature to Thousand and One Arabian Nights to Ganshof's wonderful monogram on medieval feudalism. I play bluegrass guitar, collect antique clocks on the side, dabble in amateur astronomy, play hardcore boardgames with my wife, and practice Historic European Martial Arts (specifically the Quarterstaff).

And, of course, I write. Lots. It's hard. It dogs your sleep and ruins your life. But it's worth it... getting that thing you see in your mind's eye out on paper.

Thanks for reading.
